In reality, Manchester City came to London and did what it's done in almost every Premier League match it's played this season: put on a complete performance, flying forward in attack and battening the hatches in defense.
"I am so happy for him after last season and the way he played last season".
His incisive passing, movement, back-tracking, pressing, tackling and forward runs were of the highest standard in another excellent performance from one of the league's stand-out players this season.
'It will be so tough but it is so important in the process that we can do it - we will go to these stadiums and try'. Both the teams had met totally five totally 157 times, Chelsea had won 66 matches, Manchester City has won 52 matches and 39 matches ended in a draw.
"You have to consider that in seven games we've played Arsenal, Tottenham, Man City and Everton".
From the resultant corner, City launched a counter-attack through Raheem Sterling whose teasing cross went across the home side's goal with Gabriel Jesus and Silva failing to capitalise.
However, Chelsea boss Conte says that the France global still has plenty of room for improvement as he continues to get used to life in west London.
"Manchester City are a very good team, but last season it was the same".
"We have United. We saw again the Harry Kane team, every game he scores two or three goals". This time around though, he's shown why he's considered one of the best coaches in the world.
"You realise after 1-0 we didn't defend".
City had lost top spot to local rivals Manchester United earlier in the day, but the victory takes them back to the summit on goal difference as they recorded an eighth consecutive victory across all competitions.
However, Guardiola believes the result and performance at such a hard venue as Stamford Bridge will give them huge confidence going into the rest of the season. But even last season when we came here - we weren't able to win, we tried to do that. But it's the way we play and feel football.
